These two special friends are looking for a loving home together as they have become an inseparable pair, one acting as the eyes of the other.

Franky, the black Pug, acts as a guide dog to his blind friend Elly, helping her on walks or to get food and water. Elly follows Franky everywhere he leads, she sniffs the air to find him then nuzzles into his side so he can lead the way.
Nursed back to health after they were found, RSPCA workers are hoping to find a home for the four year old Pugs together.

Elaine Buchan, manager of the RSPCA centre in Newport said: ‘This little duo obviously love each other very much. Franky is extremely boisterous and playful and Elly is very affectionate and cuddly. He looks out for her and provides support while guiding her on walks or to food or water.”
Both Franky and Elly will need operations before they can be placed in a new home, but vets are certain the dogs will be a delight to anyone who takes them in.
Mrs Buchan added: ‘There’s absolutely no option of homing them separately as it would break their hearts and also be wholly impractical. They’re great little dogs and I’m already jealous of the lucky owner who will get to care for such a loving pair.”
